New Delhi, Feb 27, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Coal, the world's most abundant fossil fuel, plays a vital role in the world energy mix. It supplies 24 percent of the total global energy and 40 percent of global electricity. In Asia, coal accounts for almost 75 percent of electricity generation nationally, and is most likely to remain the principal fuel source in the future.

As a prospering country with world's 5th largest coal reserve, India's energy mix mainly comprises of coal (52 per cent), oil (32 per cent), gas (10 per cent), hydro electricity (5 per cent) and nuclear energy (1 per cent). Coal demand is expected to rise 41% in the year ending March 2017.

Against the background of climate change and the nature of Indian coal, clean coal technologies such as coal upgrading, coal gasification, UCG, CTL and CCS have been highly advocated by the governments, coal and power producers to secure a sustainable, reliable and economical power industry.
